    Sure enough, both Bats and Rhinoceros have scrotums, and Elephants don't.

            >Scrotifera
            >The name comes from the word scrotum, a pouch in which the testes permanently reside in the adult male. All members of the group have a postpenile scrotum, often prominently displayed, except for some aquatic forms and pangolin (which has the testes just below the skin). It appears to be an ancestral character for this group, yet other orders generally lack this as an ancestral feature, with the probable exception of Primates.

      What's it about mammals that makes them evolve so fast?

      • 5 months ago
        Anonymous

        I'd always been told that it was simply their warm-bloodedness causing great adaptivity. That makes sense I guess, but it doesn't really explain the speed of mammal evolution?

      • 5 months ago

        They don't actually evolve that fast compared to other animal groups. Squamates and birds are both way more species rich than mammals. Let's not bring bony fish and especially not arthropods into the conversation.

          The number of species is a gay metric. There are 20 thousand ant species, they all look the same. "Hurr durr we're different because we can't reproduce with the other species" frick off, stupid ant.

        Mammals have very similar structures of bones and innards. They don't even need to come up with new genes, they just shift a few sliders and change their shape.
        Personally I think periods of harsh environmental conditions which reduce population numbers are the main drivers behind change. Inbreeding of species with lower chromosome numbers unleashes some fricked up shapes and mutations.

        they didn't. mammals were stuck in nocturnal vermin MMR hell from the triassic to the cretaceous after the therapsids, our ancestors, got heavily BTFO'd in the P-T extinction. There was an explosion in evolution to fill niches left by the dinosaurs dying out.

          Very true. We were under the cruel rule of the reptile/avian for millions of years. Humiliated. Reduced to nothing. We need to assert our dominance while we’re still at the top.

            The next top will still be us. Mammals will go extinct, but not by surprise. Unlike most animals, we've chosen our successor, and it is still us, because we need not be mammals to be ourselves.

            Some people won't be too happy but this was 100% intentional.

      Sharks split off earlier, though I don't know enough about phylogeny to know whether that anon is actually correct. By the same logic, we have more right to be called fish than sharks.
